On the CCE-Tompkins website, you will find a page with general information on the Emerald Ash Borer (here: http://ccetompkins.org/environment/invasive-nuisance-species/invasive-pests/emerald-ash-borer) which includes several links on 'Management' including a link to The New York Invasive Species Clearinghouse, Cornell Cooperative Extension Invasive Species Program. Their website offers a variety of detailed fact sheets on pesticides used to control EAB, and some discuss potential side effects. See: http://www.nyis.info/index.php?action=eab_control_options

We are seeking advice on treatment of EAB for an old, very large Ash tree in our South Hill, City of Ithaca yard. We've been advised to have a local tree company apply Basl Bark Spray on lowest four feet of Ash tree. The name of the pesticide is Salwi 2056 Diactefuran. http://www.emeraldashborer.info/documents/Multistate_EAB_Insecticide_Fact_Sheet.pdf Insecticide Options for Protecting Ash Trees from Emerald ...<http://www.emeraldashborer.info/documents/Multistate_EAB_Insecticide_Fact_Sheet.pdf> www.emeraldashborer.info Insecticide Options for Protecting Ash Trees from Emerald Ash Borer Daniel A. Herms, Deborah G. McCullough, David R. Smitley, Clifford S. Sadof, Previously we had injections done in the tree as a preventive. We see no signs of EAB. The local tree company recommends the spray be applied this week. If not done immediately they said it should be done in Spring. We welcome advice re this spray and/or this spray technique. What do you think about this compound? . What do you think about this spray technique in lieu of the injections? If you recommend the spray, what is the last effective date for spraying this Summer? Is there someone else you suggest we check in with on this spray technique and/or this pesticide? Any additional advice much appreciated. Thanks so much.
